Travel tips you can trust


Why the
Dingle Peninsula
is special

Dingle Peninsula in Ireland has stunning landscapes and seascapes similar to celebrated ones in the nearby Ring of Kerry, but it is significantly less touristy, populated, and developed. It is also truer to its heritage. For example, the Irish language (Gaelic) is still spoken in most areas.
